Spectrasonics с гордостью представляет результат многолених разработок,
совершенно новый и великолепный виртуальный инструмент - Omnisphere.
Этот легендарный ‘Power Synth’ открывает абсолютно новые акустические
пространства, благодаря сочетанию широкого спектра гибридных
риал-таймовых приемов синтеза, знаменитой библиотеки замечательных
звуков типа ‘Psychoacoustic’, а также множество инновационных
возможностей, не предлагавшихся ни в одном из имеющихся в настоящее
время синтезаторов - как аппаратных, так и программных. Этот новый
инструмент - первый из тех, которые будут базироваться на недавно
разработанном движке STEAM Engine от Spectrasonics.
“This is truly an Epic project,” said Eric Persing,
Founder and Creative Director of Spectrasonics. “We have been working
for many, many years; sampling unique sounds, experimenting, specifying
the synthesis features and building the STEAM Engine to run it all.
It’s been a very exciting process involving our team of software
engineers, sound designers, musicians, and graphic artists from all
over the world. We’ve been very deliberate in making it easy to use,
and yet extremely powerful. Omnisphere is our new flagship synthesizer,
and points the way to all our future virtual instruments. We are
thrilled to offer a new product that will have a host of expansion
capabilities in the future.”
Although this new synth is extremely powerful, Omnisphere is designed
with a unique user interface containing progressive layers of ‘zooming’
to accommodate the complete range of users - from musicians who just
want to be inspired by the sounds and customize them in an easy way, to
expert synthesists and the most advanced sound designers. Users can go
deeper and deeper into the software and progress in their synthesis
knowledge by simply exploring additional levels of sound manipulation
options. To make sure that all users get the most out of the new
capabilities, Omnisphere includes an extensive set of video tutorials
and synthesis lessons taught by the renown Spectrasonics sound design
Omnisphere offers a host of hybrid synthesis and new control
capabilities including Variable Waveshaping DSP synthesis, Granular
synthesis, Timbre Shifting, FM, polyphonic Ring Modulation,
high-resolution streaming Sample Playback, Harmonia™, Dual Multimode
Filter structure, Chaos Envelopes™, an advanced Unison mode, and the
innovative Flex-Mod™ modulation routing system - to name a few.
The huge core library of Omnisphere is filled with years of creative
sampling experiments and thousands of inspiring patches. Spectrasonics
has pioneered several brand-new types of sampling for the core library
of this instrument, including unique “Psychoacoustic” sounds and
soundsources created with a new Composite Morphing Technique (CMT) -
which morphs the harmonic characteristics of one instrument to another.
As a bonus, a section of the core library is also devoted to
representing the best of Spectrasonics award-winning sample libraries.
When all of these organic core library soundsources are combined with
the synthesis power of the STEAM engine, the sounds become “alive” in a
truly dynamic and expressive way.
Among the many unique features this new multitimbral synth offers are
its flexible arpeggiators with the innovative Groove Lock™ integration
with Stylus RMX - allowing the arpeggiator’s pattern to instantly
groove with the feel of the RMX drum loop; Live Mode for transitionless
patch switching and layering, Stack Mode for powerful performance
mapping; and integrated modulatable FX Racks.
Omnisphere is also the successor to Spectrasonics’ popular Atmosphere®
instrument, and contains enhanced versions of all the classic
Atmosphere sounds. However, the brand new core library in Omnisphere is
10-times the size of Atmosphere and features thousands of completely
new and different sounds.
The culmination of many years of development, Omnisphere is an
instrument of extraordinary power and versatility. Omnisphere brings
many different types of synthesis together into one amazing-sounding
instrument that will inspire a lifetime of exploration.
Omnisphere is cross-platform compatible with Apple Macintosh OS X 10.4
and higher as a native Universal Binary and also with Microsoft Windows
XP/Vista. Audio Units, VST, and RTAS plug-in formats are supported for
compatibility with all major host software.
